Cutting Edge Technology
Dr. Ken Siegel believes in staying at the forefront of dentistry. He studies each new dental technology he encounters and asks the question: will this help my patients? If it will, he purchases it. As a result, our office is equipped with many of the latest advances in dental technology in order to provide you with the most efficient, accurate and comfortable treatment possible.
Our low-radiation dental CT scanner provides detailed panoramic and 360-degree, 3D views of all your oral structures. This data allows Dr. Siegel to provide a precise diagnosis and lay out an effective treatment plan.
K7 Evaluation System for TMJ
Dr. Siegel uses the K7 Evaluation System to determine the cause of any TMJ dysfunction you may have. The device measures the motion of your jaw, the sounds of your jaw joint (to detect catching or grinding) and the tension in your jaw muscles to help track down the source of an imbalanced bite.

NuCalm® Drug-Free Relaxation
We offer a high-tech, drug-free way to help you overcome dental anxiety and relax with NuCalm. The NuCalm system consists of a light-blocking eye mask, noise-softening headphones that play relaxing music, micro-current stimulation patches placed behind the ears and a topical cream or chewable dietary supplement that counteracts adrenaline. Around 95% of patients who have tried NuCalm say that this technique works for them, and 98% say they would recommend it to a friend or family member.
Comfort Control Syringe
The Comfort Control Syringe is a computer-assisted injection system that enables Dr. Siegel to administer anesthetic very gently and comfortably. This device delivers anesthetic in a small enough volume and at a slow enough speed to be below your body’s pain threshold.
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
Early detection of oral cancer can increase your survival odds by 66%, which is why we make screening for early signs of cancer an important step in all our new patient exams. Our VELscope oral cancer screening tool makes checking your mouth for oral cancer quick and easy. It uses a special light that makes normal tissues glow to expose potentially cancerous lesions. If we detect any dark regions, we will refer you to an oral surgeon who will take a sample of the tissue to test for a definitive cancer diagnosis.
